Silhouette: Dynamics Colorwave Full Rim

Silhouette: Dynamics Colorwave Full Rim

Dynamics Colorwave Full Rim A fresh take on a classic style Because of the success of the rimless Dynamics Colorwave style, the Silhouette brand is now introducing it in a full rim. Taking the classic with a modern twist frame and adding the subtle, lightweight titanium rims give the eyewear a whole new look. Though minimalistic, the frame has a solid structure, including the simple SPX trim detail on the temple like the original while also being completely on par with the current wire-trend. With the inclusion of brass and rose gold color accents, as well as the oversized shapes – particularly the round aviator with double bridge model – this style was definitely designed with the more fashion-forward, trendy eyewear wearer in mind. The array of models in the collection feel and look very fresh, which will be sure to pique the interest of both male and female eyeglass wearers. Also new with this collection is the streamlined temple end with transparent temple tip. Dynamics Colorwave Full Rim will be available in select optical shops as of September 2017. Silhouette What began in 1964 with a vision – eyewear as an accessory – has today become the world’s leading...
